Q: How is this product for milk intolerance and allergy when it contains a dairy protein, whey?

submitted by Frankie - 6 years ago
  • A: Two out of my three kids have had to use this formula. By far the only one I'd recommend. Even if it is just intolerance.

    submitted byPringle - 2 years ago
  • A: From the Gerber website: "Extensively hydrolyzed formula are made by hydrolyzing cow’s milk protein to break down the proteins into tiny pieces to make the formula hypoallergenic." There is more information at https://www.gerber.com/products/product/gerber-extensive-ha

Kids/Toddler measuring guide

Use the tips & visuals in this guide to make taking your child's body measurements easy-peasy.

Don’t have a fabric tape measure? Use a shoelace or pant leg to measure. Then, lay it flat & use a ruler or tape measure to get a numerical measurement.

How to measure

  • Height

    Standing with feet together and back to a wall. Measure from floor to the top of the head.

  • Chest

    Have your child make airplane arms. Wrap tape measure around the fullest part of the chest, keeping it level & snug.

  • Waist

    With your child bending to one side, measure the point where the waist flexes naturally. Keep the tape level & comfortably loose.

  • Hip

    Have your child stand like a tall tree with feet together. Measure a level line around the fullest part of the hips & seat.

  • Inseam

    Take a pair of pants that fit your child well. Measure along the seam from crotch to leg opening.

This formula is EXTREMELY bitter and does not taste good. I understand it may be a lifeline for some infants, but my infant took one taste and detested it so much she wouldn't take it again. I tasted it and then understood why. Quite honestly, the flavor is terrible! Won't buy this again or recommend it to anyone,

We tried all formulas even Kendamils Goat milk and Nutrimigen. This formula is the only that has helped my baby especially with her eczema and allergies to Cows Milk. We do have some rice cereal to help with her reflux. Only dislike is doesn’t shake well so we have to stir with spoon and be prepared baby may have dark green stools.

Claudibel - 7 months ago, Verified purchaser
I’d imagine that anyone who buys this scarce formula is because they need to for some medical reason. The smell isn’t great and it does make my baby gassy but with some gas medicine it is manageable. I wish it were more affordable and abundant.

We bought this in hopes of saving some money since it seemed similar to nutramigen. Nope. Don’t do it. Within 12 hours my baby was back to screaming and in pain with gas and reflux. We immediately went back to nutramigen.

I kept my grandson for the weekend when he was 6 weeks old and I called my daughter in law letting her know something wasn’t right. He cried after every feeding and it was not a normal cry. I researched and found Gerber GoodStart Extensive HA. This formula has been nothing but God’s sent. Completely different baby. Although she has WIC, I’ve been paying cash due to the milk shortage and I order from wherever it’s in stock to prevent us from running out. Don’t hesitate, buy it!

My son has CMPA and we couldn't find the formula our Pediatrician recommended. We found this formula and decided to try it out along with a generic brand. We started off mixing it with breastmilk, and gradually kept reducing the amount of breastmilk to get him used to the taste. It smells horrid, but I haven't found a hypoallergenic formula that doesn't smell. Overall this formula has worked the best for our little guy. We found that this mixes easily, we use room temp water and a blender bottle. It mixes much better than the generic formulas we've tried. I'm not sure why people think this is watered down. Maybe they're not adding enough formula? It's 1 scoop per 1 ounce of water.

I think all of these reviews saying it stinks are absolutely wrong! It has no smell at all. Thjs formula is a dream. Now some other hypoallergenic formulas stink, definitely not this one. My baby loves it. This formula mixes like a dream too! Maybe these other people got a bad batch.

My little guy has been through the ringer with his protein allergy and the recall on the first formula that helped him but this formula helped in so many ways. Only thing is we can’t find it anywhere in store. Please do something to keep up with the demand as of tonight we have enough for 3 bottles and can’t find any within 4 hours of our home. :(

My son was born prematurely at 35 weeks he is now 10 months. From the day he was born until about 3 months ago he was out on 8 different formulas. After months of trial and error I heard about Gerber Extensive HA and I said to myself “well what the heck might as well give it a try” from the moment he had his first bottle of HA his mood changed completely. No more crying in pain, no more irritability, he was his normal self. I definitely recommend this formula 100% to any babies that have a milk allergy like him.

My son was super fussy and always constipated we were on Similac pro sensitive since he was born. Then what he was 3 months old I changed him one night and found out he had blood in his stool. We went to the doctors and they informed me that he had a allergy to cows milk we started this formula and it truly has changed my baby for the better he is way happier and not constipated anymore . I cant thank Gerber enough for this formula.

Thank you so much for having this feeding finder. My little grandbaby has been having issues with breast milk and formula. We have been trying everything until I discovered the feeding finder. I just ordered the lactose intolerant formula and I'm praying this works. Gerber has always been our first option, other than breast milk.

Eczema cleared.

Rodolfo - 2 years ago

My LO has extreme eczema which made makes her stay up all night and unable to get rest. Our first recommended product was soy milk formula, but after a while it made her eczema much worse. I did some research and found this product (Extensive HA) to be hypoallergenic. I gave this a try for 1 week and to my surprise my LO was able to get deep sleep and eats very well. I had some concern with her stool being dark green, but overall if my baby is happy then I'm also happy. Who ever is the genius behind this product. Thank you. It cleared up her eczema gradually and I hope this continues. I do have some concerns with the consistency of the product. 1 scoop seems too watery, although it does mimic a mother's milk. I'd recommend this product to whom ever is suffering from eczema.

My son wasn’t receiving enough milk and we tried to supplement with similac for few weeks after leaving the hospital. I noticed his tummy would be hard and he was so fussy. One month using similar he broke out in rash all over his face and had wheezing, constipation and gas. Poor little guy was miserable and he was solely consumir formula by this time. His pediatrician recommended enfamil nutrimigen or Similac Alimentum and none resolved any of his symptoms. Finally did my own research and my baby needed a whey based formula (easy for digestion) vs Casin which is in similac and enfamil and like cottage cheese in my baby’s belly. My research lead me to Gerber Good Start extensive HA. Within 2days my baby was pooping regularly and no more hard tummy. He slept better/longer and his wheezing resolved immediately. The rash completely resolved by one month of use. It’s likely that my baby has a milk allergy/lactose and I was pleased to find this product. Thank you Geber for making this product that is an All in One solution and source of nutrition for my baby. He’s 3 months and thriving and we are so happy with this product.

Best formula I’ve found for reflux

5 out of 5 stars
Thumbs up graphic, would recommend
Momma to Nate the Great - 4 years ago
First of all, every formula is different for every baby. I have never had a baby with problems with formula because I’ve always breast-fed but my fifth baby has had some major feeding issues along with being born with Down syndrome. I really needed to solve this for him. This formula is number7 in our list of finding one to work. It actually has been great to finally get there. Because of his issues, it’s been expensive and a lot of wasted formula. The reviews I’ve seen don’t even sound like the same formula I’ve experienced but maybe I’ve just seen way worse that they have out there and this one is minor now compared to them. This formula mixes easy for me and doesn’t seem to have that bad of a smell compared to those I’ve tried. The reflux is gone and his poop is finally normal!!! Yay! That’s a great breakthrough for a mom! I hope you try it with the same success. To transition, Ask your pediatrician about the best way. We did it a bit at a time using the one we currently were using to make it easier on his tummy. If you have questions maybe they can explain it, but this is what worked for us. This seems hard to find in stock but Walmart seemed to have it more often ordering it from their online to pick up In Store.

First I’m going to start with saying that the few places that carry it in store don’t keep it stocked. The formula smells so awful, and smells even worse coming out than it does going in, it really smells terrible. It stains his clothes and stuff brown. It takes sooooooo long to mix it even if u use a blender it will still have chunks. When my son would spit up this formula it would hurt his throat like it burned. And it’s so expensive.

Oh no, we are so sorry for you had such a terrible experience with our Extensive HA Formula. We would appreciate the chance to ask a few Q's and gather some coding info from that container. Could we ask you to call one of our Registered Dietitians on staff so they can see how your LO is doing? We can be reached at 1-800-255-2164 anytime between 8am and 8pm EST, M-F. Thanks for your help.

The formula is rarely kept in stock: it’s expensive. It stinks. It stains clothes. When my baby would spit up it would hurt him and burn his throat. Also it took forever to mix it there would be chunks in it after mixing for an extremely long time, even with a mixer it still took forever.We didn’t like it AT ALL.
